Did You Know?

Goofs:
Miscellaneous: Picard implies from his mind meld with Sarek that relations between Sarek and Spock were not good. However, Spock and Sarek had already started renewing their relationship at the end of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. This aired about 5 years prior to Unification.See more »
Quotes:
[Picard is requesting a cloaked vessel from Chancellor Gowron through B'iJik, a junior adjutant]
B'iJik:How would it benefit the Klingon Empire? I'm sure Gowron will ask.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard:The only benefit to the Klingon Empire would be our gratitude.
B'iJik:That is what you want me to tell him?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard:Yes. And please add that, if he is unable to provide us with a ship, then I am sure there are others in the Klingon Empire who would be willing to help me. And then... *they* would have our gratitude.

Unification with the Original Series., 25 April 2006
Author: russem31 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

ST:TNG:108 - "Unification, Part II" (Stardate: 45236.4) - this is the 7th episode of the 5th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation (as a NOTE, this is the 108th episode to go into production, whereas "Unification, Part II" was the 107th episode to go into production).

This is a pivotal 2-part episode, which aired in November 1991, coming at the time of Star Trek's 25th anniversary and tying it into Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (which was released a month after this episode in December). It also occurred at the time of Gene Roddenberry's death (he died in October 1991.

It concerns Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy), now an ambassador, who has seemingly defected over to the Romulan side. The Enterprise is sent to investigate this seeming defection. Traveling to Vulcan, Picard first meets dying Sarek (Mark Lenard is his last TNG appearance) for the last time, who informs Picard of Spock's relationship with a Romulan Senator Pardek of Romulus. Sarek also wants Picard to express his love for his son (since Sarek is in no condition to do so anymore).

Returning to the Enterprise, Picard concocts a plan where he and Data will go to Romulus in search of Spock and his real motives aboard a cloaked Klingon Vessel, while Riker in command of the Enterprise investigates a theft of a Vulcan Vessel.

An intriguing first part of the historic "Unification" episode, to be cherished by fans and non-fans alike.

Trivia note: Picard reemphasizes his role as Arbitor of Succession. Joanna Miles also returns as Perrin, Sarek's wife. And, there's mention of the talkative barber Mr. Mott.

Also, the Romulan Imperial Senate is seen (just like in Star Trek: Nemesis).
